COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular brewmaster special brought back by overwhelming requests. A classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied, complex and interesting yet mild in flavor. Our interpretation of this style has distinctive hop aroma and flavor. (O.G.-1.052, IBUs 23)

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Fair example for style. Reddish clear brown and decent lacing. Aroma of toasted biscuit. As with some of their other beers, there is a good deal of alcohol burning despite being a relatively mild abv. Didnt pick up much nuttiness.
